At the Joseph Kushner Hebrew Academy, our goal is to provide students with the tools and strategies that they need to become successful, independent, lifelong learners within the rigorous academic setting of a Yeshiva day school. To help all students on the learning spectrum succeed, the JKHA Middle School Learning Lab offers learning support services to eligible children from sixth through the eighth grade, with an emphasis on multi-modality approaches to instruction.
The Middle School Learning Center at JKHA provides a nurturing environment where learning differences are understood, acknowledged and supported. Working individually and in small groups with special education professionals, Middle School students enhance their understanding of both General and Judaic Studies subjects, while mastering study skills. As students mature, they are also encouraged to practice self-assessment and self-advocacy—skills that are critical to success in middle school and beyond.
